Careers

Thompsons Plant & Garden Centres are a family run Garden Centre group consisting of four Retails sites. We specialise in supplying our garden centres with our very own plants, grown on four nursery sites in the south-east.

Our growing nurseries all specialise in particular areas, helping us make sure we supply our own garden centres with a diverse choice of freshly delivered plants.  Our plants are all grown in the south-east, are fresher and a better quality as they have fewer miles to travel to their destinations. 

As well as our extensive collection of plants we aim to provide everything you would need for your garden. At all of our garden centres, you will find compost, weedkillers, insecticides, lawn care products, plant food, watering equipment, houseplants, fencing, stoneware, tubs and baskets, fruit & vegetables and much more.
